The Immorality of GMOs….Are YOU Part of the Problem or the Solution?

Leslie has already taken it upon herself to create a unique blog on YouTube – ‘30 Day with Non-GMO Activist Leslie Stoddard, which manages to summarize what GMO activists all over the World go through on a daily basis.

Leslie Stoddard:

“In the fall of 2009 my life was forever changed by three little words. Genetically Modified Organism. I had never heard the term GMO before and when I realized that the genetics of our food supply have been modified with foreign DNA without our knowledge, without our consent, and without safety testing, I knew I had to do something to let others know what we are eating.

I started doing online activism and speaker training with the Institute of Responsible Technology. IRT got me in touch with Jenny Easley, a Mother from Middleton, Idaho, who’s story was nearly identical to mine. We got together and formed GMO Free Idaho.

We are dedicated to educating Idaho consumers and farmers about the presence of genetically modified organisms in our food supply and raising awareness about the importance of buying local and organic.

Our goal is to pass GMO labeling laws in Idaho during the 2014 Legislative Session.

I currently reside in Boise, the Idaho State Capitol, but I was raised in rural Idaho in the small town of Ashton. I grew up surrounded by GMO fields and industrial agriculture, never knowing the consequences of farming this way.

Learning about GMOs opened my eyes to the destruction that industrial agriculture has caused on our environment and our health.

I’m passionate about this cause because I care about the future of our planet and the health of future generations.”

    How about a poster of a parent spraying their kids dinner plate with Round up? Caption: Would you knowingly spray their meal with this?

    I have just recently researched the GMO scam. I am planting an organic vegetable garden and I am considering going vegetarian, mostly because of this. I can get grass feed beef and range free chickens from local farmers, but how do you know where your fish has been? I eat more salmon than anything else. I don’t care for beef and chicken so if I am going to give up salmon, I will become vegetarian and just grow my own.

    What about the in humane and horrid corporate animal “farms” in Idaho that have been abusing animals long before 2008? These need to be closed! And owners prosecuted for animal cruelty. From an Alaskan hunter.
